“Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief.
Do justly now, love mercy now, walk humbly now.
You are not obligated to complete the work,
But neither are you free to abandon it.”
– The Talmud
The world is full of grief and injustice. Here is how we remain undaunted: We stand up to relentlessly defend every human right, we continuously stand in the gap for each forgotten human – One Precious Person At A Time. Repeat Forever.
That’s what Love Flash Mobs are about – that’s what Today is about.
Right now, there are 19 kids in NYC whose futures depend on us showing up. As usual, 100% of what we receive from you will go out the door for them.
When your baby moves out of your home—to a dorm or apartment—will you pick out new sheets, drive the truck, meet the roommate and whisper to her before you walk out the door: “The best is ahead for you, my love. This will be hard. But we can do hard things. And you are not alone. We are here for you.” ️
️ Right now, in NYC there are 19 kids who have spent their lives in foster care, most in many different homes–who, because they have “aged out” of the system–are forced to start a new life in a gigantic city, utterly Alone. Without a family, without a community, without the tangible things they need to start a life.
If that sounds like a nearly impossible way to start out, it’s because it is: 1 in 4 youth are homeless within 3 years of aging out of foster care.
Today we STEP INTO THIS GAP. We help mother these kids. To these brave, tenacious 19, we say: “This will be hard. But we can do hard things. You are not alone. We are here for you.” ️
We need to raise $110,500 today so these 19 are not alone and have what they need to start a new life.
PLEASE GO TO THE LINK IN MY BIO ABOVE ️ AND GIVE. $5, $10, $25 –Whatever you can. This is going to take all of us. Donations are tax-deductible.
At the link at the top of that page, you can read the full story. Please share it, read it with your kids, and teach them what it means to love wider than your own homes and neighborhoods.
Or Text the word TR4DREAMS to the # 41444 for a prompt to give.
